I have had Crohn's Disease for about 30 years. I use Peppermint, that soothes the intestinal lining. Wild Yam that helps with inflammation of the intestines. Marshmallow Root, also helps with soothing of the intestines. Echinachea, helps the healing process. I mix these together using the dried herbs in a small strainer basket and prepare as a hot tea. Drink as needed or two to three times per day. I do add a little sugar for taste. Hope this helps.
